Why move the shift key?5/3/2009
I like this product, but the volume is too quiet, even turned all the way up. They also moved the shift key for your right hand and it causes me to "page up" instead. I am trying to get used to it, but so far I am having no luck
Among the newer netbooks, this one should be considered a good buy. The newest releases may have longer battery life, but I've enjoyed 7 hours with this one. Technical support (upgrading RAM from 1 GB to 2 GB) was mechanically simple and very quick, but finding out which BIOS upgrade to obtain from ASUS is a little complicated. I would definitely buy this netbook again.
Great for Traveling2/4/2009
If you are looking for a little PC that is easy to pack and carry around this is the one for you. It is not for you if you expect do to a lot more than email and web surfing with a little light work. Good screen resolution for a small screen and the keyboard is adequate for light usage. Battery seems to be good for 5-6 hours which is a fair trade off for the size and weight.
I have installed at least 20 of these Eee PC 1000HA (didn't need the bluetooth and wireless N the 1000H has) for my clients. They are holding up very well. The users are service techs, beer sales and MS Office type users. One set of users run a program that's pretty heavy on graphics and after testing the Atom proccessor found that it handles it well. Don't get one with a Celeron. I have an older model myself with the 7" inch screen and a Celeron, I see a 1000H in my future.
I purchased this little pc for my husband as a gift. He is very happy with it. It's a very sturdy computer, comes with a little foam slip case (this wasn't indicated in the literature). It's perfect for carrying around, reading the newspapers, playing games. My husband plays scrabble all the time. As usual Buy.com shipped it right away. Anyway, it's a great little computer.
This is a great laptop for anyone. I was hesitant in buying one of these or getting a laptop that could play all the games I have and everything, but I am glad that I bought this laptop. The only con that I have about this laptop is that I was told and it was advertised that the battery should get 7 hours of battery life. Dont get me wrong, the battery life on it is around 5 hours but just not the 7 that is advertised. I might be able to get 7 hours if I wasnt connected to the internet, on power saver mode and just have it idle... Although this laptop was not meant for games, I have successfully installed unreal tourny 2k4 and played it with no problems. I mainly bought the laptop to do word documents and surf the web while I watch tv (which is what I am doing right now) and it is more then I could have expected. Also do not purchase the Eee from best buy as the one on buy.com has the atom processor which is almost twice as fast as the celeron they are putting in the ones at best buy. This one also has the webcam and better battery. The one from buy.com also has the dolby sound room technology which I am unsure if the one from best buy has. Regardless this Eee from buy.com is worth it just through the processor alone!!! BUY ONE!!
